• F.A.Q

    • What type of event is your specialty?

      Weddings are, but we can handle pretty much all different types of the events.

    • Can I see my DJ perform before deciding to book them?

      From time to time I’ll get asked this question, and the first thing I always tell prospective clients is that every wedding is extremely personal, not to mention private. So, no, it is not possible unless we are working a public event.

      Please check out our event videos we post, and that will help give you an idea of us in action.

    • Do You Stream The Music At Events?

      All of the music we play is from our owned music library , and we will have at least one back up copy at each event.   We do not rely on streaming music to perform, we do have the option to stream music if we do not have them in our library=, ( internet connection dependent of course)

    • Why do I have to sign a contract?

      It is extremely important to have your booking confirmed in writing. We will provide you with a written contract outlining the terms of your service.   We will sign the contract and send you a copy to retain for your records. It is important to have a contract to guarantee your DJ services. I would never suggest booking any DJ service with out a written contract.  We will not perform any services without a signed contract

    • What if I need to cancel after signing the contract?

      If you need to cancel your contract with us for any reason, email us to inform us of the cancelation, the reservation fee that was paid to secure the date is not refundable, and will not be refunded.     Any payments made towards the remaining balance will be refunded.

    • Can you provide music and sound for the ceremony too?

      Yes we can provide music for your Wedding Ceremony. Make sure to let us know that you will also need us for the Wedding Ceremony.   We can play all your wedding music as well as provide wireless microphones to be used by you and your officiant so you guests do not miss a single moment. We offer a second sound system for your wedding ceremony which allows us to transition quickly from the ceremony to the reception.

    • How can I make sure that my Wedding DJ will have all of my special songs and play them at my event?

      It starts with you making sure you have submitted the songs you want us to play in advance of the wedding,  generally no later than one week prior to the date. 

    • Will our DJ act as an Emcee during our event?

      Yes , we will act as an Emcee during your event. This is one of the services we offer that is key to the success of your function. Your DJ will make all announcements and make sure that the night keeps on track according to your time line.

    • Are you insured? Can you supply me with proof of liability?

      Yes, we are, and yes we can!

    • What Makes Stephens Entertainment unique?

      I bring a unique blend of experience, expertise, and a deep passion for creating unforgettable moments. With years of DJing weddings under my belt, I understand the importance of curating the perfect playlist that reflects the couple's unique style and love story

    • How early will out DJ arrive to set up?

      We like to arrive anywhere between 1.5 to 3 hours early to set up, but it all depends on the venue/location as to how early they allow vendors onsight. 

    • Can we pick what music to play?

      Yes you can pick what music to play. Simply submit a list of songs in advance that you would like to hear and we will play them. This is good because it not only gives us great songs to play but also an idea of your musical tastes.   We also feature an online request sheet you can send to your guests in advance to fill out.

    • Will our DJ take guest requests?

      Absolutely! We’ll work with you prior to your event to determine the specific styles and individual requests that you’d like played. We’ll also encourage your guests to make requests (if you approve) to make sure we play the songs that you and your guests want to dance to.

    • What type of music do you play?

      We have an extensive selection of music consisting of Club Dance, Classic Rock, Country, Oldies, Big Band, Motown, R & B, Rap, Disco, and Hip-Hop. We have everything from the 1940’s to today’s top 40, so there is something for all age groups. We will discuss with you in advance what types of music you want played during your Wedding and we will play only those types of music.

    • What is your Wedding DJ coverage area?

      Our normal area of operations is in the Phoenix Metro area (Maricopa County), we will travel outside of our service area but travel fees will be applied( outside of 75miles)

    • How does your DJ dress for a formal event?

      You choose the DJ outfit in advance and I will wear it. If it is a formal event I will typically wear a black or white dress shirt, formal black vest, black pants and a tie, most none formal events a company polo shirt and slacks/khakis

    • How do we pay for your services?

      We accept all forms of payment, cash, credit card, Payapl, checks. If paying by check, remaining balance for services must be made 14 business days prior to the event date.    We require the full balance to be paid no later than 24 hours before the event date.  For events booked more than a few months out, we allow payments plans to make it easier.   Save

    • How far in advance do we need to book Your Wedding DJ services?

      Wedding DJs are typically are typically booked as much as a year ahead of time. I would try to book your DJ as early as possible. Some last minute bookings may be available as much as a few weeks ahead of time. It all depends on the dates. wedding vendors in the Greater Phoenix area are busiest in March, April and May and again in October, November and December.

    • Do you charge set up?

      There is no charge for set-up/tear down,  We typically begin set-up about between 1 to 2 hours before the music needs to be playing unless other arrangements have been made.


    • How do we book your DJ services?

      Call, text or email us, or fill out our online contact request form so we can discuss your entertainment needs. We will put together an entertainment package based on your needs that includes pricing. Once you approve your package we will send you an online contract.

      We require a booking retainer fee ( amount varies by event type and cost) with a signed contract to hold the dates for you. Once the contract and the deposit are received by us we will hold the date. We work on a first come first serve basis. The first contract we receive for the date with a paid booking retainer fee will get the date. The retainer fee must be paid at the same time of the signed contract.

    • Why Do You Charge So Much

      We charge the rates the we do to cover the time we spend not only at the event/wedding, but all the prep time that we spend getting ready and the time we spend getting set up,  you wouldn't want to work for free at your job, and, neither do we.   Most weddings we spend around 6-8 hours on prep time.

    • How close do you need to be to electricity?

      The furthest we can run our equipment from an outlet is 100 feet, which we can bring extension cords for that distance.  If there is no electricity we do have a generator available for rent.  The generator is an additional cost and has enough power to run our system and our lights if needed.

    • Do we need to provide food for the DJ?

      We do not expect you to provide food for us.  We do greatly appreciate an offer of food since most events are done around meal time, however, we can always bring something with us to eat.  Either way, we will eat as quickly as we can and not interfere with you or your guests.
